Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions with Snapchat!

All of us are quick to announce what our new year resolutions are going to be. Be it losing a few kilos or getting ourselves that dream job or maybe even finding our soulmate, we are determined that THIS will be the year we keep to our resolutions!

Until we don’t…

Unfortunately, for us mere mortals, a mouthwatering donut or a simple text from our ex can lead to the demise of our promises after just a few weeks into the new year.

But what if there is something you could do to stay focused on your goals?

The Friendship Report, a study conducted by Protein Agency and Snap Inc, found that the top activities that we most frequently engage in with our friends include talking or messaging over the phone and that most Malaysians between the age of 13-24 years old like to share about their hopes and dreams with their best friends.

In light of this, Snapchat has come up with a simple guide on how you and your friends can stay motivated to achieve your 2020 resolutions!

Step 1: Create a Snapchat group with your closest friends

Group chats with your closest friends are a fun and easy way to keep track of each other’s progress in terms of achieving your #2020goals. Create a fun little group name such as ‘Fit2020’ or ‘NoCry2k20” depending on the group’s goal and start updating your friends on what you’ve done to achieve your new year resolutions.

Step 2: Stay Motivated By Using Motivating Bitmojis

Get creative by sending weekly updates using Bitmoji - your personalized digital avatar. Create a game out of it with whoever sending the best Bitmojis wining a small token at the end of each week. Not only do you get to have fun way to keep you motivated but you also have a personalised way to keep each other accountable towards your 2020 goals.

Step 3: Celebrate your small achievements together using Cameos or Friendmojis

If the usual thumbs up or confetti popping emojis aren’t enough to celebrate your weekly achievements, take it up a notch by opting to use Friendmojis - a sticker of your Bitmoji interacting with a friend’s Bitmoji!

That’s not all as Snap recently introduced Cameos that allows you to bring your conversation to life by placing your face over GIFs for a more personalized message! What an awesome way to celebrate your friends reaching their milestones!
